Alabama Republicans will decide Tuesday whether former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore or U.S. Sen. Luther Strange will be party’s nominee for the Senate seat to which Strange was appointed after Jeff Sessions became attorney general.
The election is a party primary runoff. The Republican nominee will face Democrat Doug Jones, a former U.S. Attorney, in the general election on Dec. 12. Those who voted in the Aug. 15 Democratic Primary are not eligible to vote in this Republican runoff.
Most Russell County polls will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, except for precincts in Dixie, Hurtsboro and Hatchechubbee, which like Lee County operate on Central Time. Those will list their hours as 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CDT, but that means all the precincts will be open the same hours, just in different time zones.
Residents should remember Alabama requires voters to show a photo ID before they can cast ballots.
